I’ve been waiting for you (03 Mar 2011)

13 Mar

Billy Holiday sings
I iron pillow cases
It is a rainy day.

I imagine I am a 1950s house-wife
and I care too much
or I yearn too much

for something else
to complete me.

I am a modern wife
and pulled, seemingly yanked
I abandon my ironing

and meet my man
in his chambers;
I’ve been waiting for you he says
